Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub missed a second straight day of practice on Monday because of a sore elbow, but coach Dennis Allen insists that the team is not planning a reprise of last year when Matt Flynn’s elbow trouble led to Terrelle Pryor making a late leap up the depth chart.

“I don’t look at those two situations as the same,” Allen said, via Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group, when asked about the similarity to the way things played out at quarterback last season.

Allen also said that Schaub remains on pace to start the season opener against the Jets despite his elbow injury, which Allen said is not a major concern for him, and absence from practices that it appears he needs based on his preseason performances.

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie Derek Carr looks like he would get the start if Schaub can't play, as the situation seems eerily similar to last year. Schaub won't be ranked among our top QBs especially in a tough matchup against the Jets.

Presumptive Raiders starting quarterback Matt Schaub sat out practice Sunday with a sore elbow, a scene eerily similar to a situation a year ago that led to the ascension of Terrelle Pryor as the starting quarterback at the expense of Matt Flynn.

“He came in yesterday afternoon with a little soreness in his elbow,’’ Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. “We’ll see where he’s at tomorrow and kind of take that day by day.’’

Schaub is scheduled to speak to the media following practice Monday and was unavailable for comment. The Raiders host the Seattle Seahawks in their preseason finale Thursday night at O.co Coliseum.

Fantasy Impact:

All the work in practice went to rookie Derek Carr, second-year player Matt McGloin and veteran Trent Edwards, with Carr getting first-team reps, according to Allen.

Seahawks QBs Terrelle Pryor and Tarvaris Jackson took turns guiding the No. 2 offense, with B.J. Daniels getting a series with the No. 1 offense.

Pryor seemed more erratic — a few really good plays but also some not-so-good.

Jackson was dependable. That may be Seattle’s choice at that spot and whether they want to keep two or three QBs — the consistency and dependability of Jackson versus the upside of Pryor. I think the preseason games will tell a lot there.

When fleet quarterback Terrelle Pryor was traded to Seattle in the offseason, he didn’t take the read-option calls from the Oakland Raiders' playbook with him.

This year the Raiders are considering using running back Darren McFadden as the point man in the read option. McFadden filled the role at times at the University of Arkansas, and he ran some Wildcat early in his career with Oakland. The possibility of taking snaps directly from center excites him.

“I always tell people I really was supposed to be a quarterback, I just ended up being a running back,” McFadden said. “It’s always fun to me, being able to get back there behind center. It takes me back to my old roots. The first position I ever played was quarterback. It was my first love.”

Seahawks trade for Terrelle Pryor

Raiders trade Terrelle Pryor to the Seahawks, per league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor fits in as the #2 or #3 QB, probably at #3 with Tarvaris Jackson already in Seattle. This is an interesting move by the Seahawks. Pryor is a terrific athlete and the team is hoping to mold him into a capable backup to Russell Wilson.

A timetable for Terrelle Pryor’s departure from the Raiders is starting to emerge.

According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, teams have put “feelers” out regarding Pryor to gauge the trade market value for an athletic, albeit inconsistent quarterback who wants out of Oakland.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders are in no rush with no team activities in the near future, not until April 21. But the team wants him out before that so he's not a distraction. He could end up being released. Pryor ranks below newly-acquired Matt Schaub and Matt McGloin on the depth chart.

Fantasy Impact:

Terrelle Pryor returns to start at QB for the Raiders. He's a risky play with upside against the Broncos.

While QB Matt McGloin has generally played well since becoming the starter, Sunday was the first time he caused the Raiders major pain.

“It’s tough when a quarterback is going through a learning process,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said. “As the losses mount up, it gets frustrating. It’s frustrating for everybody.”

McGloin threw two interceptions to Chiefs safety Eric Berry, the first of which was returned 47 yards for a touchdown. He threw two more in the fourth quarter, on successive series, the last of which got him benched.

Terrelle Pryor filled in at different times – once near the goal line, again in the third quarter and after McGloin’s fourth pick – as a planned change of pace. Pryor wasn’t much better, and threw an interception in four attempts. He competed one pass for 12 yards and had 19 rushing yards on three carries.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite being pulled, Allen said McGloin start again next week against the San Diego Chargers. Odds are great he’ll also start the season finale against Denver, too. He's a QB2 option as long as INTs don't count against you. He should put up some garbage numbers, most likely trying to bring the Raiders from behind.

HC Dennis Allen said Matt McGloin will be the Raiders starting quarterback against the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

Beat writer Vic Tafur later Monday tweeted McGloin will start the final three games with Terrelle Pryor getting some spot duty. The team obviously wants to see what they have in McGloin. The Raiders get KC, San Diego and Denver the final three weeks.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he is inclined to stick with Matt McGloin at quarterback for now, without signing off on McGloin for final 4 games.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders have some packages for Terrelle Pryor even if McGloin starts. Seems like the team would like to get as much info as they can on these guys for the future, but it looks like McGloin could start at least in Week 14.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was well enough to be active and serve as Matt McGloin's backup against Tennessee.

He also had a package of plays the Raiders could have used, but HC Dennis Allen felt it better to give him another week of rest -- hence the use of Marcel Reece as the wildcat quarterback instead of Pryor.

Fantasy Impact:

Something to watch for Thursday against the Cowboys. Pryor won't be a starting fantasy option, but if you're playing McGloin, it could certainly take away from his production.

Matt McGloin will get another start

Raiders HC Dennis Allen says Matt McGloin will start at QB for Raiders vs. Cowboys on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a pretty good matchup against the Cowboys but McGloin will likely fall as a middle of the road QB2. He played pretty well in a tough matchup against the Titans and at this point the team wants to see what they may have in McGloin over Terrelle Pryor.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 12. Matt McGloin will start against the Titans. He tossed three touchdowns last week against the Texans but isn't a trustworthy start just yet. Pryor may be active as McGloin's backup in Week 12.

Thursday, November 21, 2013, 6:49pm

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Matt McGloin will start against the Titans. He tossed three touchdowns last week against the Texans but isn't a trustworthy start just yet. Pryor may be active as McGloin's backup in Week 12.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Matt McGloin will start against the Titans. He tossed three touchdowns last week against the Texans but isn't a trustworthy start just yet.
